Bad Teacher was a surprise hit, earning a healthy $216 million at the global box office. While it would be considered a decent haul under any circumstance, it proved to be an especially good result for Bad Teacher, which cost only $20 million to make. Diaz had a deal to take home a nice chunk of the film’s profits, which were substantial.
